Scope and Content Note

The series consists of writings by other authors sent to Joan McBreen from 1985 to 2002. Although the writings are largely made up of individual poems and poetry collections, the series also includes a small number of screen plays and essay drafts. As many of these writings include correspondence between McBreen and other authors, notations and cross-references have been provided throughout the series listings.
